Enjoy the chapter!
Chapter 160 – The third assassin?
The morning after I confirmed the girls sizes I started to feel a presence and started to wake up. This is not Meru’s presence. Or rather, I can’t feel Meru’s presence at all. Did she went for a morning stroll or did she went to se her mother Meral?
Did the girls got in again? Yesterday due to my mental exhaustion I forgot to lock the door and I didn’t put something to seal the door… hmmm… well, it can’t be helped.
I slowly open my eyes and…
“Ya… you were so intense last night.”
To my side is a woman lying down and saying something. That woman had hair as red as fire, a sharp look and strong-willed features but, she was definitely beautiful. Figurewise, her chest was on the regretable side, and a slim physique but, just by looking you could tell that it was well forged. Her abs were perfectly built. Why do I know that you ask? Because that woman was only wearing a jacket that only covered her shoulders and underwear.
“Well~ I wanted to try saying it once… are? Is he awake? It seems like he’s looking here… Hey! Hello~!”
I got up on the spot and take a combat stance.
“Wh-Who are you?! Why are you sleeping in my bed?!”
“Mh? Now that you mention it, this is our first meet. I am the Goddess of War.”
… Goddess of War… Goddess of War… Goddess of War… Goddess of War?
THE GODDESS OF WAR!!
After I screamed in my head, I let out all my exhaustion at once, and sit down hard in the place. The woman infront me does the same and sits. I should probably confirm just in case…
“Just in case I’ll ask but, are you the real deal?”
“Mh? Is it fine with this?”
Saying that, the woman in front of me wears a godly aura as if to prove herself. Yeah I knew… I knew she was the real one… but I still wanted it to be just a dream… haa…
“It’s okay already, I get it.”
“Is that so?”
The Goddes of War erases her aura and smiles at me. I reply with a bitter smile.
“And? What is the Goddes of War doing here? Or rather, how did you get here?”
“That’s a simple story. Between us Goddesses I am the one who rules over war and thus the one that can store power more easily. And so I stored power to be able to manifest myself because I wanted to meet you… and at the same time see how is the world doing.”
… eh? What is it? Leaving aside the part about wanting to meet me… I get the feeling that what she is saying is extremely normal… Mh? Isn’t she a friend of the Goddess? Her comrade? innit?
“… Uhm… Just that?”
“Is there anything else?”
“… No… there… isn’t.”
How to say it… is like… if a Goddess says something normal, I get thrown out of tune…
“So, you already met me, and now you are going to see how the world is doing?”
“Let’s see… well, there’s nothing else to do… even though I manifested myself I can’t fight.”
“You can’t fight? You are Goddess of War, right?”
When I ask her, the Goddess of War says “ahaha…” while smiling bitterly.
“Well, I am the Goddess that rules over war for certain but, for me to be able to fight there are a lot of restrictions so I can’t easily do it.”
“… Eh? But you wrote before that you wanted to fight with me if you got to meet me, didn’t you?”
“… I got carried on by the moment.”
“So, that wasn’t true?”
“No, it was.”
“When Wazu gets a complete deification, you will be a being of the same nature as us, and at that moment we can fight without a problem.”
… Yeah, I want to go in a way where I won’t… Being someone of the same nature with the Goddesses that don’t hit me completetly the right way is a little bit… but I see… If I perform a complete deification, I’ll get to be the same as the Goddesses… haa…
“Well, that’s for when I get to be one…”
“Yeah!! I’ll wait eagerly until then!! From now on I’ll look foward to that day!!”
The Goddess of War says that with a really happy face… Ahh… If she makes such a happy face, I’ll become unable to keep fussing over my race percentage dropping…
“Mh? Is something wrong? Are you feeling unwell? Do you want to lay down? Ah! Am I disturbing you? I’m sorry, I’ll leave now.”
I knew it!! With all this conversation I understood!! You are too normal!! This is a normal conversation!! No, saying nomral is rude, she is a good person… a too good Goddess!! Is this Goddess the same type as that Goddess or that Earth Goddess? In fact she isn’t, right?!
“Then, take care!!”
And saying that, the Goddess of War raices a hand and starts leaving the room.
“Yeah? What is it?”
Aree? Why did I stop the Goddess of War? Could it be that because we were having an unexpectedly normal conversation, I got a little shaken? The other Goddesses have never been worried about my condition nor do I remember having a proper conversation with any of them ever… Or rather, while I’m thinking this, the Goddess of War is still faithfully waiting for what I’m about to say. What do I do, what do I say… I spoke without thinking and now can seem to say anything at all… Ah! That’s right!!
“You can’t fight right?”
“Yeah, there are some restrictions.”
“But can you teach people how to fight?”
“Let’s see, I can’t demonstrate how but I can at least talk about how.”
“Then, I know it’s an imprudent of me but, can you please teach a thing or two to the girls?”
“Mhh… Well, why not. I think that would be okay. Besides we are the same in that we feel strongly towrads Wazu and I thought of talking to them in order to get along better with them so this is a good chance. But I just have just time to teach to one or two of them. And I’ll watch them form afar so I don’t become a bother to them and point out when is required. I’m sorry I can’t teach all of them.”
SUCH A NICE GODDESS!!!
What’s with this Goddess of War!! She is normal!! Really normal!! You can interact normally with her!! There is no fault or eccentricity to be found!! I’m sorry!! I’m sorry I grouped you with the other Goddesses!! I’m sorry that I put my guard up from the begining!! On the contrary, please come whenever you want!! Or rather, If you want to stay forever that’s fine too!! If you need my power to sustain your manifestation then I’ll give it to you any time!!
“Then I first go see how are they doing. If I don’t actually see it, I won’t be able to know what to teach them.”
After saying that, the Goddess of War leaves the room while waving her hand and I return the gesture.
I go to the work room to make the girls’ armour after getting dumbfounded for a while, thinking that there is this kind of Goddess too.
